Notable changes this year include a more diverse and comprehensive seminar programme including over 100 presenters across four parallel sessions. We have also extended the steering pad resulting in more vehicles available for a ride & drive experience; added a technology showcase in Hall 2 and also added a seminar presentation zone in Hall 2. Every year we take our post-event feedback seriously to ensure the LCV event meets the requirements and expectations of all who attend. We hope that LCV2015 will be your best yet!”

Joe Greenwell, CEO of UKTI’s Automotive Investment Organisation said, “The UK has a globally recognised research and development environment for advanced propulsion and light weighting. Over £1 billion of industry and Government money is being invested in the Advanced Propulsion Centre to power the design and commercialisation of low-carbon engines and transmissions, while a further £900 million in subsidies and infrastructure is being provided for ultra-low emission vehicles. LCV provides the ideal platform to showcase this expertise to the world.”

At the show UK Trade & Investment will be offering UK companies the opportunity to meet with a delegation of international companies from a number of markets, with the specific purpose of encouraging business development discussions between the UK and our overseas guests.
